How to recruit JewishGenners in Russia, Poland or Ukrain #general
Dear Genners. It's a pitty that there is nobody >from Russia,Poland or Ukrain
in our discussion(according to the emails). There are our roots and there we
must consentrate our searches. The question is how to "force" them to
contact?They can help us in our search in archives,cemetaries, etc. I would
be very happy if we could discuss it. It can be very helpful
Dear Genners. It's a pitty that there is nobody >from Russia,Poland or UkrainWell, I am living in Poland near Warsaw.
The main issue, I think, is the language barrier. In Poland, people don't
However, I have encountered a Polish discussion group abour genealogy (not
But it is in Polish only.
Dear Genners. It's a pitty that there is nobody >from Russia,Poland or UkrainI am also on a Slavic academic list that has quite a few correspondents in the
I can send a message requesting to post an announcement inviting interested
people to join this list. Perhaps our list managers can compose the message
with the appropriate links and I will post it.
The Jewish communities of Lithuania and of St Petersburg have web sites
(I'm sure there are others, but these I know of specifically.) You can get
them by googling. They have contact email addresses.
Again, an invitation to join this list might bring in some people.

Dear Genners. It's a pitty that there is nobody >from Russia,Poland or UkrainFirst of all let us not talk about forcing anyone to do anything - although
I know you put it in inverted commas.
There must be genealogical bodies - whether Jewish or otherwise - in these

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Estates/6121 seems to be for the
provision of a professional service which obviously is charged for.
I have also found an organisation called Blitz which is based jointly in
California and St Petersburg which offers a commercial service.
Presumably what is being suggested could be done through Russian Jews in
Israel, either through their linguistic skills, or by recruiting their
relatives in Russia.

I meant to send this earlier, but forgot it was in my "Out" box.
Yes, it would be very nice indeed if we could find people in our
ancestors' countries to assist us with our research!
Of my four grandparents, two were >from Dnepropetrovsk, in the middle
Ukraine. Fully half of my ancestry. While Kiev is fairly accessible,
Dnep. is virtually closed. Letters have been written, contacts made
with people of some authority, and links via a sister-city program,
but absolutely no success or progress. I'd hoped (and *still* hope)
that we could engage the Jewish community there, and provide them
with a (much-needed) source of income, in return for finding the
documents we crave. We haven't even been able to find someone to
begin the process.
There is a archived-approved commercial service, which will quote a
price only to begin a search, and refuses to provide any other cost
breakdown or estimate, even for a single-record look-up.
I offer huge thanks to those living in Poland, Kiev, etc. who have
been willing to help us.
